The Nurse Next Door Difference
“Centralized call centre”
Our ‘secret sauce’ really is our centralized, 24/7, call centre which handles all of our franchise partners’ scheduling needs across Canada. This centralized call centre is the only one of its kind in our industry anywhere in North America and allows us to take on the majority of a franchise partner’s administrative burden while they focus on growing their business.
“Award-winning employment initiatives”
Flexible shifts, an in-house companionship training program, a specially designed Mommy Shift, and an unmatched culture have all made Nurse Next Door an employer of choice and consistently the recipient of major top employer awards. These initiatives ensure our franchise partners have the ability to recruit the best caregivers in their local markets and offer unparalleled service to their clients.
Nurse Next Door leadership, starting with co-founders John DeHart and Ken Sim, is unmatched in the industry. The co-founders have been listed as two of the Top 40 Under 40 in Vancouver and are recipients of the prestigious Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2006 as Emerging Entrepreneurs. A top-notch advisory board with key industry players helps to guide the strategic direction of Nurse Next Door. Chairman, Milton Wong, also Chairman of HSBC Asset Management Canada, leads the advisory board which also includes Cameron Herold, former COO of 1800GOTJUNK, Michael Drever, founder and CEO of CruiseShipCenters and Judi Richardson, a former Director of Marketing for Starbucks.
“A truly national brand”
Nurse Next Door has built a powerful national brand our franchise partners are able to leverage. Regular media coverage in some of Canada’s largest and most influential media outlets is making Nurse Next Door a household name across the country. Recent media coverage has included CTV, CBC, GlobalTV, The National Post and The Globe and Mail.
Intensive and on-going support is part of the Nurse Next Door package in addition to thorough operational manuals. The 7-week start-up training culminates in an intensive 1- week hands on program at Nurse Next Door Head office. This is followed by regular weekly support from an expert business coach. Our fantastic support programs have ensured Nurse Next Door a place among the 2009 Franchisee Satisfaction Award winners – a program recognizing the top franchise systems in North America. Nurse Next Door’s support programs are designed for franchise partners with or without healthcare experience.
“Really, it boils down to systems. The people at Nurse Next Door have built incredible systems that have helped make us so successful and we’re definitely excited for the growth to come.”
